Share Button

*Traffic Ticket Advisory* Beginning this week, Regional Transit Agency officials say, downtown New Orleans vehicular snarls caused by street closures on and around Loyola Avenue between the Westbank Expressway and Canal Street should begin to ease.

On Monday, July 23rd, two lanes will reopen on the river side of Loyola Avenue from Poydras Street to Tulane Avenue. One lane on the lake side of Loyola Avenue from Perdido Street to Poydras Street will also reopen. The following week, on Monday July 30th, two lanes of traffic will be reopened on the lake side of Loyola Avenue from Perdido Street to Poydras Street.

The changes are likely to ease some of the morning and afternoon rush-hour vehicular congenstion in the CBD that has been caused by this multi-million dollar transit upgrade that is currently underway in New Orleans.

Traffic lanes from Elk Place to Canal Street will remain closed due to Entergy’s need to complete underground electrical work.

The closure of the intersection at Tulane Avenue and Rampart Street has been reconfigured to allow at least one riverbound lane to be open at all times. The lakebound closure will remain in effect until mid-August, 2012.
